How to change user name used for reports

In some instances, TechHit products need to identify a user for the purposes of presenting that information to you in reports. For example, as a part of the "installations" report. In this case, by default, we use an obfuscated Windows login name. The obfuscation uses the first and last characters only. For example, if the user name is "techhit", it is stored in our system and shown to you as "t*t".

In some cases, you may want to change that value. For example, some organization use an employee id. To change it, create the following registry value and set it to the user identifier you would like to use. It is important that you set it to different values for different users, so that you are able to tell users apart.
Key name: "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\"
Value name: "UserName"
Value type: String or Expandable String

Alternatively, you can configure the product to use full Windows user name. Contact us for details if you would like to do so.
